I'm building a new frame clip and fuel cell. The cell will be made from stainless steal. I'll take pix and make tech articles. If ya guys want. the frame is going to be so much fun to make.....I'm not welding up the cell due to my father not trusting my tig welding abilities.....although i did make headers for my civic. Ok i'm out lata

Looks sweet. I am sure you already know this, but be sure to butt weld/angle grind the pieces of the frame. Or just plate the seams. Can't wait to see that biatch laid out.

Oh by the way, with those jonnie joints, I called biokustumz and they said you HAVE to mount the bags directly on top of the lower bars, because other wise the bars will twist inwards and make the front bushings bind up REAL bad. It's got me kinda depressed. But oh well, gotta fix it.
